we see at love great negotiator. no one better than he is he would be amazing president for this country. >> growing up, was the disciplinarian in the family. >> yes. he made us work and instilled great values. we were the last family to be caught dancing on a night table. that wasn't us. young age put on construction sites. we worked hard. expected to get great grades and perform. he held us to a high standard and we never let him down. he was amazing father and great guy. he still to this day one of my best friends and my boss and my mentor. i have the utmost respect for him. >> all right. at age 10, for instance, was he teaching you how to ride a baseball or were you out negotiating deals and looking at real estate. >> probably walking real estate. big building follow him around. he taught us the art of the deal just by being with him. you know i remember building lego sets in his office
while he was negotiating great casino keels and other things. it was a lot of fun. yeah, probably less of the let's go play baseball in the yard. amazing guy. the relationship we have is incredible. i mean, just kind of the family dynamic. most of the time family businesses are total disasters. what we have been able to peace together, he, evac can -- i van carks myself. building the greatest hotels and golf properties. here is he winning the g.o.p. right now. i couldn't be more proud. >> dew points him to be president? >> listen, i think the man would do absolutely amazing job. the answer is yes. in fact, i ha encouraging him before he announce to do run. because, when you have that unique insight on a person, when you see their quality and how good they are at what they do, i think he would do phenomenal job for this country. we have real problems. $19 trillion worth of ebb debt. trade deficits all over the place. real problems in the middle east and educational
problems. things need to be fixed in this country. infrastructure there would be no better infrastructure president than he would be, right? he is amazing builder. is he passionate about it quite frankly, he doesn't need to set aside his life to do this. he has to the an amazing company and he's doing it. very selfless. amazing thing. >> what do you make of sort of his spicy language? he has very spicy language. blunt, called people stupidity. he doesn't suffer fools and sometimes he punches back real hard. >> he does punch back really hard. that's one of the things i admire most about him and he can punch back real hard. that's one of the reasons people are attack the to do him. they are stick of the pc and nonsense. they want a person who will fight for this country and won't be bought by the lobbyists. he is that guy. really what gives him his charm and appeal and why people love him. >> so who gets the family business if he should become president? i mean, you have got two siblings. the with it of have you --
the three of have you been working with your father a long time. >> my sister and don are great. we are opening up hotels all over the world. we are building the best golf course and residential buildings. we are having a great time doing it. it will be a team effort. >> that's a no answer. i don't get which sibling is going to be stepping over which other sibling. i don't get that. >> i mean, there won't be. we have never had a quarrel in our lives. we are really best friends. we do everything together. we do different hotels. we all run different properties. it really really works well. so contrary to many family businesses which are disastrous. we have amazing recipe and best friends and we're on this war path together and having a great time doing it. >> and the oldest son donald trump jr. also going "on the record" to talk about his family. >> your brother has been here and i asked him this question or something like it so i will ask you. growing up what was he like as a father? was he a disciplinarian.
>> he was amazing father. he stressed education. he stressed the importance of that he stressed family and being together. i work with my siblings and him on a daily basis. dynamic. stressed the important things for what it is like to be a family and american. is he a patriot. he believes so strongly in these issues. which is why is he stepping back from a great life, a great business to do what is a relatively thankless thing the presidency. i wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. it's really great to see him so passionate about it. >> is this tough on the family on the three of you adult children. as you sort of sit by nice things said about your father but not so nice things. is that tough? >> i guess we are used to it a little bit. not like this is the first time we have seen him in the spotlight. we have some great things going on, thousands of projects that are incredible successes but the only thing anyone wants to talk about
is the one failure 15 years ago. that happens in business. that's the reality in business. it's so disproportionately successful. that doesn't get enough credit. he doesn't get enough credit for being the businessman that he is for what he has created. >> do you think he wants to be president? >> i think without question. again, he wants to do it because is he fed up with what's going on in this country. the inefficiency, the stupidity, the people making trillion-dollar deals who have never made deals in any way, shape, or form in their lives. enough's enough. i think that's what's resonating with people. real americans really like the message that is he delivering. they are fed up, too. they have just been powerless to do anything about it. really he has given them that voice. it's amazing to see the reaction we get from people across all of the spectrums around the country when they talk about how much they love him and how they think he can do what we think can he do for this country and it's been amazing. >> when you were a kid, did you play catch with him or go look at property? >> we were definitely a more of go look at property kind
of family. my mother did a great job on the other side. had grand parents that were so involved. that said, he was always there for us. he always made sure that -- if he was in the biggest meeting of his life if we called, he would pick up the phone. if he was negotiating huge deals and at the office we would be playing with trucks on the floor. he was always there for us. it was really interesting. it taught us about business and the importance of those decisions from a very young age. i always joke, i have been working in the company for 7 years because we had that kind of level of access and because he was always there with us. >> that is your age. anyway. donald, thank you very much. and more melania. what does she think about possibly becoming the next first lady? you'll hear from melania in just minutes. plus, right here and "on the record" donald trump and melania trump together. they are taking you inside trump's new hotel just two blocks from the white house. meet the trumps continues next. >> what kind of a first lady would she be? >> i think she would be
